terrorist activities. the fbi agent in san diego described washington's inquiry into major hasan as slim, quote-unquote. the case was dropped until november 5th when the media began circulating reports of the massacre. at that time the san diego agents knew exactly who the perpetrator was saying, quote: you know who that is, that's our boy. years before the fbi knew of nidal hasan, the army major was being noticed by his superiors and colleagues at walter reed army medical center where he was a resident being trained to care for soldiers coming home from war. .. disaster and psychometry to have completed the master of public health at the uniformed services university. he has a key interest in the failure fe fe and has shown a capacity to contribute to the psychological understanding of islam and nationalism and what may relate to the national security and army interest in the middle east and asia. these officer evaluation reports were inaccurate. these were all flags none of which reacted. so many flies in this case. they don't present the facts that represent character in reali
the danger confronts us here in the united states or abroad. in june of 2009, fbi director robert mueller acknowledged the immense challenge facing the bureau stating: it is not sufficient for us as an organization to respond to a terrorist attack after it has occurred. it is important for us as an organization to develop the intelligence to anticipate a terrorist attack. developing intelligence, developing facts. in the past we looked at collecting facts for the courtroom. we now have to think of ourselves as gathering facts and painting a picture of a particular threat understanding the risk and moving to reduce that risk. and i couldn't agree more with the director's statement. and then on november the 5th, 2009, a gunman walked into the soldier readiness center at fort hood, texas, and shouted the classic jihadist term, allahu akbar, and opened fire on soldiers and civilians. he killed 14 and wounded 42 others. this was the most horrific terrorist attack on u.s. soil since 9/11. today we will examine the facts of the fort be hood case as we know them -- fort hood case as we know them
to government cyber and wisdom sitting next to secret service agents and fbi agents so they're all sharing the information in near real-time, machine to machine speed, not necessarily just human to human. so they can get that overall operational picture to identify cyber risk. and then it becomes actionable because the energy sector person sits there and says, that's important to me in this way, and i need that information to protect my sector which may be different than what the water person sees. so than by doing that and collecting and sharing classified information them unclassified information, per type -- proprietary information, we have a better idea of what activity is and how the activity propagates through these various sectors. so it's something that can be enhanced. is something that can be expanded on that is something that currently exists. >> so that is an effective system, capability to provide the very similar information sharing to what congress would like to legislate. is there an awareness problem? >> i think it's an evolutionary problem. so we started the capability, a
with fixing it. things like the supervision of the process of investigation is very different for the fbi then it is for atf. my basic question is why? why does fbi have one supervising and atf has a different process overseen by the same doj. the scope of the task that you mention in your report with atf if there is irregular functioning criminal function overlap at times and there are obvious issues. and i'm going to either tunica comment. the size of the agency and what they're trying to accomplish. as i read through your report, got to page 338 and there was a very interesting comment that basically alluded to the fact that atf of phoenix is over their head. they were trying to take on the massive task in outlets like they were trying to accomplish something big, but they didn't have the right people, were not coordinated this particular group of asians were in way over their head and should not be engaged. again, goes back to the scope of the task. i've got one more issue it to visit, but i want to talk about the issue of regulatory versus criminal responsibility in the task given to
the magazine is being led by the fbi, and -- >> the criminal acts. obviously it wasn't national-security. that is along the lines of what was wrong, what the best fishing could have done better. >> at the cow would refer you for questions about security about -- at the beth because the facility and broadly speaking in a diplomatic facility consulates and embassies around the world to the state department. in terms of the statements that were corrected by defense our state, i would refer you to those departments. you know, from our perspective we got out to you the information that we had as soon as we had it, and it was available. our assessment of what happened has been based on the best available of affirmation that we've had. there is an ongoing investigation led by the fbi now going back to specifically what happened. levirate the result of that investigation for more information about the protests and the attacks and what precipitated them into participated in them. with the primary objective here of fulfilling the president's commitments that those people responsible for t
, from the f.b.i., and from the administration discussing this very question. gathering all the information we possibly can, making sure we have the facts before we make a quick judgment about the role of libya, the role of terrorists and what we've seen to date. it's a response by the libyan government, even the firing of one of their top officials who made an inappropriate remark relative to this attack. so, in conclusion, madam president, i encourage my colleagues to pause and look at the larger picture when it comes to foreign aid. cutting off aid and disengaging from these countries is exactly what the perpetrators of these attacks and protesters are trying to achieve. i do not know if supporting the governments in this volatile region in this revolutionary movement will bring us the results we so urgently need. but if we are to review thoroughly the tools available to us -- and i'm convinced that we must -- we should not begin by throwing out the tools that we have. we need to sharpen those tools and better define their use but not discard them prematurely. madam presi
intrusions and the threat and sophistication of these attacks is growing as we speak. earlier this year, f.b.i. director robert mueller warned that, and i quote -- "the cyber threat will pose the number-one threat to our country in the near future." now, mr. president, the reason i came here today, in addition to acknowledging the sacrifice of those that were made on september 11 and the sacrifice that have been made by tens of thousands if not millions of americans since then and the kind of efforts that have been put in place that will hopefully prevent us from such an attack in the future is to discuss a failure on the part of this congress to address this most imminent and threatening attack, the cyber attack that i previously mentioned. the week before the august recess -- and particularly in an election year, of course will always be filled with partisanship here in washington, but we really hit a low point this year in adjourning for the august recess as we rushed to vote on a cyber bill, which i did support, but did not convey the wishes of many of us who have worked for weeks and mont
for fbi, not cia. okay? this is a job for the michigan state police, not the department of defense. okay. by the way, by and large most of the information we knew, okay, we knew about umar farouk abdulmutallab, the guy coming into detroit was all foreign derived. i think it was mistake to mirandize him in 50 minutes because our base of him is foreign intelligence. to me the right entry point was, enemy combatant, nation at war, deal with it that way. on the other hand if someone is discovered and prevented in an attack in the united states by the fbi the roots of that information are law enforcement derived. the going in position is we ought to treat this as a law enforcement problem and enter this into the american court system. i suppose if we stayed her long enough we could think of exceptions but in broad measure my sense is that is how we should deal with it. i hope made it worth your while coming here this afternoon. i hope you have left with more questions than you had when you came in. that was my intent. and thank you very much for the opportunity. and, go air force.

in benghazi? and to that, the fbi says it is too dangerous to be in benghazi why none of them are there now. is that because the situation has worsened or was the always that dangerous in benghazi? >> i think, on the terrorist attack i mean, as we determined the details of what took place there, and how that, attack took place, that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack and that's when i came to that conclusion. as again, as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is ongoing hopefully will determine that. >> a day after or, was -- >> took a while to really get some of the feedback from what exactly happened at that location. >> there was a thread of intelligence reporting that that groups in the environment in western, correction, eastern libya were seeking to coalesce but there wasn't anything specific and certainly not a specific threat to the consulate that i'm aware of. and, as far as to the risks that the fbi reported to you, really have to ask them for why they made that determination. i don't know. >> wa

partners including the fbi. the intelligence community is devoting more resources to identifying trafficking networks. it strengthened protection so that foreign-born workers know their rights. and most of all we are going after the traffickers. new anti-trafficking teams are dismantling their networks. last year we charged a record number of these predators with human trafficking. we are putting them where they belong, behind bars.

? >> several reasons. there was the fbi counterintelligence program which was actually quite successful doing a few things, installing the agent provocateurs that created some of the discord that exists now in the party between different factions. people were actually buying and part of what i write about in the book is the health programs there is a way the health programs respond to the fact members of the party were buying in conflict with the police and state authorities. politics just change so the party ends on the early 1980's and the world changed between 68 and 80. activists -- it's easier when you are 18 or 20 you don't have a mortgage or children, but the stakes can be often a lot lower for being an activist and the stakes of being an activist or high so part of it was aging and the national cycle of the organizations as well. >> coming up on the 50th anniversary of the black panther party is there another book from you? >> there isn't another book on the party but i continue to write about african-americans engagement with issues of health and science. >> alandra nelson that teach
